Description

The purpose of the contract is to allow the further investigation of the
Kerdiffstown Landfill site and immediate surrounding area to inform ongoing
hydrogeological, gas and stability risk assessment works and the associated
design and development of restoration proposals for the landfill site. The contract
also includes the installation of gas extraction wells to supplement existing gas
management infrastructure at the site. The aims of the ground investigation works
are:
· to facilitate the installation of additional groundwater and leachate monitoring
wells within the underlying waste materials, superficial deposits and bedrock
geology;
· to facilitate the installation of additional landfill gas extraction wells which will be
connected to an existing gas flare system;
· to confirm the base and lateral extent of landfilling;
· to improve the characterisation of the landfill waste materials present;
· to confirm the natural ground and groundwater conditions at the boundaries of
the landfill site; and
· to determine geotechnical properties and characteristics for the natural strata at
the boundaries of the landfill site.
